The Discovery Weekend seminar helped me a lot as an individual, more so as a couple. Dale and I are both a work in progress and me continue to grow and deepen our relationship with Christ as the center of it. I am grateful for this seminar, most especially a BIG THANKS to Tito Jojo and Tita Ditsy with providing us techniques on how to understand our and be more emphatic towards our partner. Writing love letters and identifying my emotions toward myself, my partner, our relationship, and my God made me appreciate the gift of having a partner in life. I would definitely recommend DW to my friends and family members. I think and feel that this program is equally beneficial to couples who are not engaged yet but has marriage and family life as ultimate goal of their relationship. Before I came here, I honestly did not have any expectation. I just want to learn the techniques and of course learn more about my partner. Today I am going home with a happy heart that is full of hope. Thank you, Discovery Weekend.
The DW experience gave me a prelude in preparation for married life. While it is a bit overwhelming, it is also something to look forward to with my partner. Some of the highlights of the DW journey include the couple sharing of selected married couples, the par excellence narration/facilitating / explanation of Tito Jojo and Tita Ditsy Sumpaico (witty, admirable, tagos sa kaibuturan ng puso at bone marrow). Prior to the DW, my expectations were to a sort of retreat-style encounter with the Lord and my partner. Post-DW experience did not only give me and my partner that but beyond my expectations; to know ourselves better, deeper and more intimately. We definitely would recommend the DW program to our friends and others planning to get wed someday. God Bless the DW family!!!
Discovery Weekend made me realized that each couple has their own battles that they are fighting and that it can be resolved / improved by communicating. Discovery Weekend brought us closer together spiritually, emotionally and mentally. It is comporting to know that the man I chose to spend the rest of my life with view things, not the same as mine but is willing to communicate and discuss until we find a common ground.
I had my doubts at first and simply trusted my fiancée’s decision in attending the Discovery Weekend. Thank God for woman’s intuition because I have no regrets. The entire experience was a healthy exercise for our relationship. I loved every modules discussed and shared by our speakers and I definitely learned a lot from them. I could guarantee that me and my fiancée would have the weekend changed and equipped with the necessary tools to help us in our marriage. I greatly recommend to attend this Discovery Weekend.
Biggest takeaways – how to unmasked ourselves towards, our partner and have a peaceful dialogue to resolve our issues. Discovery Weekend helped as a couple to understand and love more another deeply as we now knew our differences that we need to take into consideration and respect it. The weekend highlights for me are the love letter makings towards our partner, which I have written one ages ago to him, I also the love letter we wrote to God. Everything was a humbling experience. Before we come here we always fighting even on the time that we directly sat down for the first topic, after the DW we became closer and understanding of one another. We recommended this DW to all couples.
Fighting guidelines, how to handle a quarrel by using emphaty. Making Gods as the center of our relationship. It primed as on how to handle certain situations than a couple usually experiences, it served as a guide. The talks and activities were fund and inspiring. I felt like I love my partner more since God will be the one guiding us to avoid misunderstanding.
